ASRock has announced its 2nd generation of Atom based nettops that will feature both Intel's Atom 330 dual core CPU and Nvidia's ION graphics.
The new Asrock ION 330HT will be available in three versions, ION 330HT-BD, ION 330HT and the ION 330Pro. The BD version, as you would have guessed, features a Blu-ray combo drive as well as the MCE remote controller, while the plain HT version is limited to DVD Super Multi optical drive.
The ION 330Pro version is sort of a cut-down version as it doesn't feature WiFi or remote controller, but it should at least be a bit cheaper.
All three models will feature Intel's dual-core Atom 330 CPU, ION Graphics, a default of 2GB of DDR2-800 memory in two SO-DIMM slots with support for up to 4GB, up to 500GB 2.5-inch HDD with support for RAID 0,1 via additional 2.5-inch HDD, 7.1-channel HD audio with DTS, D-Sub and HDMI outputs as well as 6 USB 2.0 ports, and one powered eSATA/USB port.
